“When you’re dealing with programmes in Irish and trying to attract people to TG4…. do you think they are being ‘tacky’ so as to entice people? – that’s what I think is happening.
You can write an article that can cause a lot of damage to people and shame people, or you can produce programmes that shame people …this programme shames that young girl.
It doesn’t matter what [people] think … she may be laughing about it but I was uncomfortable watching it. A lot of people felt very uncomfortable about this programme….Where is the humanity in these actions? There is none.
I’d like to hear from TG4 what were they thinking when they planned this, when they commissioned it”
